“This is huge”: James O’Brien hears proof on Trump’s collusion with Russia

Donald Trump insists there was “no collusion” with Russia, but a report yesterday said the opposite. Luke Harding told a story that James O’Brien said should “blow the lids off everything”.

A Senate report into the links between the President and the Kremlin showed what was, to all intents and purposes, “a Russian spy at the heart of the Trump campaign”.

Luke Harding has written a number of books about Russia and told James the key points of the 1,000-page report that went further that the much-vaunted Mueller report.

Speaking on LBC, he said: “One thing we learned as fact is that this Russian operative called Konstantin Kilimnik, who was talking to Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign manager throughout 2016, is outed as as a career Russian intelligence officer working for the GRU, the same outfit which tried to murder Sergei Skripal in Salisbury two years ago.

“They concealed all of their communications. They used burner phones, single-shot email accounts. They lied about it afterwards.

“For people who are skeptical about collusion, it’s hard to think of what other word you might use for their relationship. Basically, there was a Russian spy at the heart of the Trump campaign.

“The other thing I thought was really interesting was we learned what goes on at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow.

“Trump famously stayed there for the Miss Universe beauty pageant. And the dossier by Christopher Steele, which Trump says is fake and false and phoney, says that he was compromised there and videoed.

“What the Senate committee tells us is that indeed the Russians do have secret video in guests’ bedrooms. They have a full-time career intelligence officer who checks who comes and who goes and watches all this stuff from a feed in his office.

“All in all, it’s pretty damaging for Donald Trump. He’s been saying ‘No collusion, I’m vindicated’. Actually this report says exactly the opposite.”

The full conversation is fascinating – watch in full at the top of the page.


  • Trump is not the only one insisting there was no collusion. Anyone that has looked at the Steele file and tried to verify any of it has come upon one dead end after another. The US left would like that file to be factual, but it has been shown to be beyond fake – a farce. The supposed video does not seem to exist. If it had, it would have come out as the left is desperate to get rid of Trump.

    I seriously doubt James has anything new. If he does, bring it out. Don’t just titillate. The more titillation the more likely it is just another fake. So, come on, the fringe left is desperate to rid themselves of Trump. They’ll pay good money for anything they could possibly use.

    Fair warning, however, given the trash talk on the part of the left, and political violence they have fomented, it is probably too late and such a “report” would be seen for what it is, a fake.

    • You are an idiot. Russian interference and collusion are confirmed. The senate enquiry finds that Kilimnik is a GRU agent. Manafort was/is a Russian agent of influence. Together with his and Trumpkov’s friend Stone, they are as much guilty for the death and misery inflicted upon Ukraine as the rodent himself.
      The senate also confirms that the hotel in question had its own in-house FSB agent monitoring the rooms. Therefore the only question to be confirmed is whether Trump’s groveling to the rat is due to kompromat, the enormous Russian investment into the family business, or simply because he is a genuine admirer of the mass murderer putler, as the absurd fan boy letters prove.

      • Confirmed by who? LMAO, more imaginary conspiracy theorists? Dear friend, you spend SO much energy hating someone that isn’t as bad as you think. But it’s your life to live, I wish you the best. I just wish you would spend that energy on the REAL enemies of Ukraine.


        • Confirmed by the senate enquiry yesterday. Manafort worked closely with a confirmed GRU agent during the campaign. That’s collusion. Is there any Trump associate that does NOT shill for putler?
          Trump was friends for 40 years with Stone, who is a piece of scum who destroyed Ukraine with Manafort.
